Privacy policy in MUD

Privacy on a MU* is almost non-existant. It is very easy for Wizards create snooping devices that circumvent whatever privacy guarantees we may try to enforce. This is not to say that snooping devices are acceptable, they are not. Unless another user has given express permission to a Wizard, that Wizard has no business snooping on him.

Any Wizard found making and using devices that can be used to snoop, will be subject to disciplinary action by the Admins. Admins are also expected to use discretion when monitoring their MUD, in this case Icesus. You *may* be watched by an Admin, but Admins also understand that they should not listen in on what is clearly a private conversation, unrelated to the MUD. Admins are allowed to snoop, and will do so, in order to ensure that MUD security is not being compromised, that the MUD is not being used as a place for the exchange of illegal information, and to ensure game balance and adherence to whatever rules may apply. So, in general, if you are not behaving in violation of the rules here, then you should consider your privacy to exist. If you are being observed, it is the ethical duty of the Admin not to disclose any private information gleaned from such observations. However, if you are suspected of wrongdoing, and observation confirms it, then you may be subjected to logging of your commands.

In general Wizards can: Snoop you. Listen to your tells.

Admins can also: read your mails, real name/phonenumber/email info.
